    The 30 BEST Kielbasa Recipes

    We've compiled this great list of easy Kielbasa Recipes to help you decide what to cook with your favorite smoked sausage. Try this cozy Dutch recipe:


    • 1lb kielbasa sausage
    • 3lbs potatoes, chopped into 1 inch cubes
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 2 Tbsp butter or oil
    • 1 bunch kale (about 12oz), cut into 1/2 inch strips
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 2 shallots, chopped
    • 4 Tbsp butter
    • 1.5 cup milk, warmed
    • Pinch of nutmeg
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 4 Tbsp olive oil, for garnish


    1. Add potatoes to a large pot, fill with cold water till potatoes are covered, and bay leaves and generously salt water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft, then drain off water and remove bay leaves.
    2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons butter or oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chopped shallots and garlic and cook for a minute or two. Add the kale along with ¼ cup of water and steam until the kale is tender. Keep an eye on it, the water will dry out and need to be replenished before the kale gets soft.
    3. Mash the potatoes along with butter, milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Once smooth, stir in kale mixture.
    4. Cook the kielbasa according to your preferred method. We simply sautéed it in the same pan as the kale (after the kale had been removed).
    5. Serve a generous heap of the stamppot, top with sliced kielbasa, and give each serving a nice drizzle of olive oil (about 1 tablespoon).
